Instructor Profile

About
Margot Roi

O.C.T., B.F.A.

Margot Roi is about the celebration of painting abstracted conversations to inspire and make connections; one intimate layer at a time. Margot creates in planned thematic collections based on specific emotional concepts that join common threads of expressive reflection. A joyful relationship with colour drives her method of gestural mark making that flows instinctually onto the canvas.

Originally from the Dundas/Hamilton area and now creating in Oakville ON, Margot has received awards as an artist and an arts educator, holding degrees from Sheridan College, University of Windsor and Laurentian University. Her artworks can be found in numerous private and corporate collections.
